I may be laughed right off this board, but I use cream sherry in cooking. I chop fresh ginger into chunks, and cover it with cream sherry and keep it in the fridge.

I use the sherry in Chinese stir fry, usually in combination with garlic, chili sauce and soy sauce. It adds a little sweetness to the dish.

Storing ginger in sherry is not unusual. Nor is using it as a substitute of Asian wine in stir frys. Usually it is dry sherry.

Tartar sauce will work as a substitute here. Just add a cup of the sauce to the egg whites and proceed with the recipe.
